The governor of Khuzestan Province and the Iran Defense Force confirmed on Friday the country has downed a drone above the port of Mahshahr, according to local news agency Young Journalists Club.

In June, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps shot down a United States surveillance drone over the Strait of Hormuz, sparking new tensions with Washington.
